The open kitchen, dining room and living room with cathedral ceilings offer fantastic entertaining opportunities, and the seven-foot-tall marble fireplace is the perfect focal point on the main floor. Two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a half bathroom and a laundry and utility room are also located on the main floor. In addition, you’ll find two more spacious bedrooms with a shared bathroom on the second level, along with the master bedroom, which includes a luxurious ensuite and its own private balcony. The exquisite details throughout the home really make the space stand out, with slate floors, hand-carved furniture (like Asian Rosewood bedframes), marble mosaic tiles, solid marble vanities and iron decorative security grills handmade by a Prague blacksmith.
Not only is this home beautiful, but the land surrounding it is nothing short of breathtaking. A whopping 593 acres of mixed trees surround the home, and the property includes a mile of riverfront and over 2,000 ft of lakefront. A large, natural sand beach is just a short walk from the home and is situated along a three-metre-deep lake with a gradual shoreline, where you can enjoy swimming, kayaking and fishing. There’s also a wood-fired sauna imported from Finland and a storage shed located near the lake. In addition, this unbelievable home is completely off-grid and has plenty of eco-friendly features. Some of them include in-floor radiant heating (powered by a solar hot water system with a propane furnace for backup), European-grade energy-efficient windows and patio doors with double glazing and vent system, and a solar power and wind turbine system for electricity.
You really couldn’t ask for a more impressive location! The property is just 15 minutes from the village of New Germany and highway trunk 10, and 90 minutes from all of the amenities that Halifax has to offer, including the Stanfield International Airport. The Graham Cook-designed Osprey Ridge Golf Course is just 40 minutes away, and a 50-minute drive takes you to the UNESCO Town of Lunenburg and the sandy oceanfront beaches of Rissers Beach Provincial Park.
